A Few Words On Beauty

A Few Words On Beauty

What is the difference between “pretty” and “beautiful”?

The experience of beauty is one of gratitude:
gratitude to be where you are, to see what you see,
and most of all, to be alive to appreciate it.

If you can look at something and not be deeply moved,
then it may be pretty, but to you it’s not beautiful.
We need to remember to appreciate the beauty around us.
